Chrysler is pleased to announce that it has been named one of 2012’s Top 10 Car Brands by Total Car Score, a well-respected automotive research and comparison website that ranks every car, truck, van and crossover on the market.
Different than the awards for top-scoring car, which focus exclusively on individual models, the list of top car brands ranks automakers according to the overall strengths of their entire lineup. The goal, says Karl Brauer, editor in chief of Total Car Score, is to provide “a data-driven assessment of which automakers are producing the most desirable, highest-quality cars.”
The fact that Chrysler made the Top 10 means that all of our vehicles, from the Chrysler 200 to the Chrysler Town & Country, displayed the kind of consistency that brings only positive attention. And that’s not all—while we scored higher across the board than most of the competition, we also showed the second highest year-over-year improvement, jumping a whopping 3.71 points in total automaker score.
Here’s what Total Car Score had to say about a few of our models:
The 2012 Chrysler Town & Country earned a Total Car Score that’s among the highest in the Minivan category. Having perhaps the strongest pedigree in this segment, the Town & Country now arrives in its best form yet.
The 300 has been praised for its comfortable ride, powerful engines, all-wheel-drive capability and a new eight-speed automatic transmission that enhances both performance and fuel economy. Reviewers also spoke highly of the 300’s stylish exterior, upscale cabin and abundance of tech and luxury features, including standard Uconnect infotainment and a high-end 19-speaker sound system.
Critics universally agreed that the 200 (in both sedan and convertible form) is much better than the Sebring it replaced a year ago in just about every way: styling, interior design, ride comfort, and, when equipped with the Pentastar V6, driving dynamics.
Safford Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Fredericksburg, your Virginia Chrysler dealer, is proud to offer these award-winning vehicles. Provided this trend continues—and we see no reason why it shouldn’t—we’re looking forward to climbing even higher in the ranks next year.
